Crazy Uncle Joe Sucks the Air Out of the Democrat Room in 3 New Polls

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

How weak is the 20-person Democrat field? – It’s so weak that a 76 year-old, miserable two-time loser in presidential politics who has been wrong about literally every major issue facing this nation over the last half-century is sucking all the air out of the room. That’s weak.

Three new polls released yesterday show Biden blowing away the rest of the Democrat field and getting close to eating up half the support among the Party’s mind-numbed voter base: He comes in at 44% support in the Harvard-Harris poll , 46% in the Hill-HarrisX online poll and 40% in the new poll from Morning Consult. The Commie lags far behind in 2nd place with just 14% support in both of the first two polls, and a little stronger 19% in Morning Consult. None of the 18 other candidates registers even in double digits in any of the polls.

That’s how weak the 20-person Democrat field is.  Yikes.

Now, these are just three polls and as I pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, Biden was always destined to have some really good polling numbers coming out of the gate in his carefully-scripted campaign launch. He is a two-term vice president, a guy who spent more than 30 years in the U.S. Senate, and the most known quantity out of all of the candidates in the field. He had lead the polls consistently before he even declared his candidacy, and that lead was inevitably going to grow once he finally jumped in. So that was all a given.

But, as unreliable as we all know that political polls are these days, there is no denying that a) three polls with fairly consistent results represents something of a trend, and b) some of the numbers posted by the other, supposedly “major” candidates in this race are stunningly weak.

The best example is the numbers put up by former darling of the fake news media, Irish Bob O’Rourke, who registers at 3, 3, and 5 in these polls, respectively, despite his very strong, if fading, fundraising numbers. It turns out that even mindless Democrat base voters want something more from a candidate – even one who just 3 months ago was touted by our fake news media as the “next Kennedy” – than jumping up on tables, waving arms and spouting meaningless platitudes.  Go figure.

But what about the wymyn-folks? Well, the Party’s two most prominent wymyn, Faucahontas and Willie Brown’s Paramour, are doing better than Irish Bob, but that’s not saying much given that you can triple his numbers and still be mired in single-digits. The Fake Indian is averaging just 6.7% in these three polls, while Kamala Harris, who many “experts” were touting as the most likely Party nominee as recently as March, is doing a little better with an average of 7.3%.

But hey, at least they’re both out-pacing Irish Bob, and looky here – they’re both doing better than the fake news media’s latest Prom Date, Mayor Pete! Pete Buttigieg registers at 2, 8, and 6 in these three polls, for a not-very-impressive average of just 5.3%, despite having received hundreds of millions of dollars worth of fawning, free media coverage over the past two months.

Who else is even worth mentioning here? Well, there’s the “other” African American candidate, Cory Booker, who all the smart people in D.C. and the fake media were telling us last year might become the “next Barack Obama”, God help us. But that was all before his “I am Spartacus” moment in the Kavanaugh hearings last October. In these three polls, Sen. Spartacus comes in at 3, 3, and 3. Hey, at least he’s consistent.

Amy Klobuchar, who registers at 2, 0, and 2 is the only other candidate who even manages to come in at above 1% support in any of these polls. Kirsten Gillibrand’s candidacy is such a joke that the folks at RealClearPolitics have stopped even listing her in their average of polls table.  My goodness.

Now, some observations:

  • First, the field is very crowded right now and that means that support is scattered among the competing candidates. As the field narrows, voters will consolidate their support among those who remain in the race.
  • There is no doubt, for example, that the other Commies in the race, like Fauxcahontas and Mayor Pete, are sucking support away from the real Commie, Bernie Sanders. The problem the Commie is going to have is that Mayor Pete, as the only openly gay candidate in the race, is likely to have some real staying power in the race, since the media will be afraid to report anything negative about him.
  • Fauxcahontas is also likely to have some staying power, since she is the most shameless liar in this liar-filled field. We all know how mindless Democrat base voters love to be lied to. So the Commie is in real trouble here.
  • Kamala Harris needs to do something, anything to set herself apart from the crowd, but her main problem is that she is a terrible campaigner and a singularly dislikeable individual. As a person who literally got ahead by sleeping with a powerful benefactor, her backstory is very unappealing, and her off-putting personality doesn’t help anything.
  • I still think Andrew Yang will have his moment in the sun in this race. Once the debates begin – and he’s already raised enough money to be on the stage – he will stand out from the rest of this moribund, unappealing field because he is so much more intelligent than any of his opponents.
  • Everybody else who is currently in this race is wasting their time and money, even those who, like Irish Bob, believe they might make an appealing running mate for either of the two near-octogenarians at the top of the polls. Biden’s already focused on Georgia gubernatorial loser Stacey Abrams – who apparently feels she’s entitled  to the slot – and any other potential nominee is more likely to look outside of a bunch of just-defeated candidates for their running mate.

Again, I continue to believe that this week is the best polling week Biden will have in this race and that someone else will ultimately be the Democrat nominee. But at this point, given the amazing weakness of the rest of the field, I wouldn’t hazard a guess who that eventual nominee might be.

Honestly, I don’t really care. President Donald Trump will wipe the floor with any of these weak sisters, brothers and who-knows-what.

That is all.

Dying CNN Fakes up a Poll for Foundering Beto

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Another day, another fake poll. – The Democrats and their media enablers have apparently decided it’s time to try to revive the moribund campaign of their former “next Kennedy”, Irish Bob O’Rourke. With the fake Hispanic’s support among Democrats mired in the mid-single digits for the last six weeks, party leaders and fake media mavens hoping their party’s primary season will produce an interesting race that doesn’t quickly boil down to a depressing slog between two near-octogenarians know that means they need their precious “Beto” up on stage waving his arms around and promising to use his office to ban everything from reliable electricity to guns to Tylenol.

So, what’s the easiest way to rev up Democrat base-voter interest in a candidate? Why, get the news-fakers over at CNN to dummy up a fake poll showing that Irish Bob is the one guy among the 20 or so circus clowns lined up to seek the nomination who can not just defeat, but wallop President Donald Trump in the 2020 general election. You betcha.

Presto! CNN has a new poll of “registered voters” this morning pretending to show that Precious Beto would beat the President in a head-to-head race by a 52-42 margin! It’s like magic, I tell ya!

Here are the fake poll’s full top-line results:

In a new poll Beto O'Rourke emerged as the most likely to take out President Donald Trump if he were to run against him in the general elections. Of six top Democratic candidates, those polled favored five of them over Trump

In addition to its obvious, blatant effort to pump up support for the Party’s fake Hispanic – hey, why do the party and its captive media continue to ignore the real Texas Hispanic in the race, Julian Castro? –  this poll is designed to serve a couple of other purposes:

  • Put a leash on the Democrats’ fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren, who amazingly has begun to show a little momentum among Democrat voters who, after all, love to be lied to; and
  • Reassure the restless among the Democrat base that the Party’s strategy of desperately trying to keep its whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy alive right through Election Day, 2020 is working.

So, just like the New York Times has done the past couple of days with their carefully-planted fake stories designed to support the Deep State narrative, when the Democrat Party poobahs need a favor, no fake news outlet is more willing to whip it out than America’s least-favorite news-flasher, despicable old CNN.

The irony here is that the Democrat Party’s “Russia Collusion” strategy obviously is failing, and the best way to tell that is by looking at CNN’s own ratings, which have crashed through the floor since the release of the Mueller Report and its revelation that there never was any “collusion” to begin with. At least, not by anyone involved in the Trump Campaign.

The fake news network’s ratings declined by an amazing 26% in April compared to March, as the fantasy it had used to attract viewers for two solid years came up a crapper. That’s an even more amazing 41% below the network’s average rating from April, 2018. If our nation’s airports stopped their mysterious practice of giving CNN a monopoly on their captive travelers, the cable network would have almost no viewers at all.

The big problem here for the Democrats is that they really don’t have anything else other than hate and division and lies to offer the American people. Those three things form the entire basis of their Party’s reason for existing today. There is no more there there. So they have no choice but to keep doubling and tripling and quadrupling down on the only things they know to do anymore.

That means that CNN, the New York Times and all the other fake media outlets in our national fake media universe are left with no choice but to double and triple and quadruple down right along with their masters.

What a sad and destructive existence these people lead.

That is all.

Beto Really Hopes That What Happened in Vegas Stays in Vegas

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I’m old enough to remember when Beto was the “next Kennedy.”  – At least, that’s what all the dreamy-eyed girls and guys in our fake news media kept telling us last fall, when Irish Bob O’Rourke was running against an evil Republican named Ted Cruz for a senate seat in Texas. Back then, all those Millennial fake journalists fought tooth and nail with one another to be Beto’s date, to get that coveted assignment of covering his campaign or writing a glowing profile of the three-term congressman with the unremarkable record. Heck, even a lot of Baby Boomer fake journalists got into that act.

That was then, this is now. None of the fake reporters want to date their precious Beto anymore. Beto played the field, broke too many hearts during the long winter which he spent dawdling around trying to “find himself” or something. He fooled around for so long that even all the college campus social justice warriors and snowflakes went off and found themselves another goofy Democrat to idolize and project their wildest idiotic dreams of a Marxist nirvana onto, an even younger Democrat with even better hair and an even more Kennedy-esque bearing.

Oh, Beto got off to a grand start. He raised $6.1 million during the first 24 hours following his long-awaited formal announcement, drew big crowds to his first few public events, and got gobs of free media attention for his initial tactic of driving around Iowa in a gas-guzzling mom van.

But since that heady initial first week when his support ran up into the teens in a couple of national polls, it’s all gone to hell in a furry hand basket. The fundraising has fallen off dramatically; the crowds have grown so small that he has a hard time filling up a roadside diner now; the fake reporters who used to scratch and claw with one another to date his campaign are now angry when their editor denies them a date with Mayor Pete or The Commie or Creepy Joe; the polling numbers are now mired in the mid-single digits, and he is bleeding campaign staff.

On Friday, the former media-created-and-supported “rising star” in the Democrat Party ventured out to Las Vegas to give a talk on the UNLV campus, and spoke to a gathering estimated at 35 souls. Not 35,000, not 3,500, not even 350. Thirty-five. That’s a 3 followed by a 5 with no 0s after it. Not a typo.

That’s right: While Creepy Joe was cackling with the shrews on “The View”, Mayor Pete was getting profile after profile written by the fake media describing him as a “gay Christian” and “kryptonite for the Religious Right,” and The Commie was drawing big crowds in Ohio, Irish Bob O’Rourke was spending his time waving his arms and sweating and mumbling his standard meaningless platitudes at a few dozen coeds in Sin City.

Those meaningless platitudes are a big part of Irish Bob’s problem: His campaign has no meaning. As I wrote on Thursday, his campaign is like an episode of Seinfeld: A show about nothing starring a cynical guy who tells fake stories to small audiences for a living.

Yes, Democrat voters love to be lied to; yes, they love to be pounded with meaningless platitudes that they can memorize and then go scream at everyone after their third gin and tonic at the next happy hour at the local hipster bar; but the trick for a Democrat candidate is to make those meaningless platitudes his or her own.

In this task, Irish Bob is an epic failure. His major problem is that his meaningless platitudes are purely responsive. If The Commie’s for free college for everyone, why then, Irish Bob’s for it, too. If Fauxcahontas wants to come take your guns, why, so does Irish Bob! If Mayor Pete’s for Medicare for All, well, heck, Irish Bob says “Me, too!” And on and on it goes.

Ask yourself this question: What is Irish Bob O’Rourke’s signature issue? Sheep suits and skateboards don’t count.

If you’re sitting there without an answer – and you most certainly are if you are being honest with yourself – that’s my point.  The man is in a field with 19 other candidates and counting. Even with the vapid, mindless Democrat voter base, job number one for any candidate is to give those people a real reason to vote for him over all those other people. Latching onto all those other peoples’ ideas is not the way to go about it.

Being a cute, freakish novelty act will take you a long way in a Texas Senate race when you are the only person standing between the fake news media and someone the media hates as much as Ted Cruz. But it’s not going to get you very far in a field sprinkled with various other cute, freakish novelty acts and Democrat veterans onto whom all the SJWs, snowflakes and fake journalists can project their undying love, faith and loyalty.

Political lightning is a fickle thing. Irish Bob is finding out the hard way that relying on it to strike twice instead of doing the hard work of mounting a real, substantive campaign is a formula for failure.

That is all.

Oops, Cher Did it Again!

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is becoming a habit. – Barely a week after straying off the social justice warrior reservation with an errant tweet, our favorite leftist has-been entertainer from the 1960s, Cher, got herself into a bit of a pickle on Twitter once again on Tuesday. After someone in her entourage apparently forgot to lock up the LSD pantry, Cher went on the attack, but her target wasn’t President Donald Trump – instead, she went after The Commie and his desire to give the Boston Bombers and other terrorists and felons their voting rights back:

Naturally, this brief burst of common sense got Cher into hot water with Twitter’s SJW-based outrage mob, who went after the mostly-plastic entertainer like flies on a steaming pile of cow dung. Cher’s response was to delete her offending tweet, because of course it was, but what she did next was absolutely priceless, and sadly typical of behavior in the SJW crowd she inhabits.

In order to atone for her horrible transgression against leftist dogma, Cher issued the following incoherent message:

There’s that word “PPL” again. What is a “PPL”??? And what does this message from Cher even mean, other than that it pushes several buttons that make the typical mindless enraged Democrat voter feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You know, buttons like “RACIST WHITE PPL” and “STARBUCKS” and of course, “F-N”. Also, the little clapping hands emojies are worth 10 points apiece in mindless enraged Democrat voter land.

So, Cher was able to get her leftist idiot card back very quickly, and we should all be very happy about that since the thought of actually being on the same side of an issue as this raging nitwit was utterly horrifying.

But that all leads to this question: What in the hell brought this all about? Well, here’s a video of The Commie advocating for the restoration of voting rights for our society’s most heinous criminals, while they are still in prison…I swear I do not make this stuff up:

Let’s be honest here: The Commie knows where the most reliable Democrat votes reside – well, other than in cemeteries, of course – which is in our nation’s prisons, and he’s going after them. Sanders is 77 years-old and this is his last shot at destroying our country, so he doesn’t want to leave any potential despicable stone unturned. This is really not complicated at all.

Let’s also understand that, according to this week’s Granite State Poll, The Commie is far and away the Democrat Party front-runner in the state of New Hampshire, where that CNN townhall was staged. In the nation’s first primary state, this is a very popular guy among the demented Democrat voter base, coming in ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe by a 30% to 18% margin.

Who else is very popular in New Hampshire? Why, Pete Buttigieg (15% in the poll), who you saw in that video clip also endorsing restoration of criminals’ voting rights, once they have served their prison time. But hey, Mayor Pete is just 39, so he, unlike the Commie, can be more patient in his own efforts to destroy the country. So he’s playing the “long game” when it comes to securing votes from the lowest scum in our society.

Kamala Harris, who sits way back in 5th place in that Granite State poll, also weighed in in favor of wanting to mine the nation’s convicted felon population for votes. Irish Bob O’Rourke, who comes in a pathetic 7th place in the poll with just 3% support, wasn’t there. Presumably he was too busy riding skate boards or waving his arms while shouting at some crowd of poor saps in some roadside cafe in South Carolina. What a disjointed, meaningless disaster his campaign is turning out to be.

So, here’s the thing about Cher: Granted, she’s a raging nitwit; granted, she is easy to make fun of; but is she really any less-credible than the lunatics who occupied that CNN stage?

Not really, no. And Joe Biden, a guy who has been wrong about literally every issue our country has faced over the past 45 years, hasn’t even gotten into the race yet. But when he does, he’ll assume the role of front-runner for the nomination.

If this primary season doesn’t scare you to death, you’re not paying enough attention.

That is all.

 

Addendum: A couple of hours after I posted this Campaign Update, Cher decided to hit back at the Outrage Mob with this exchange with a supporter of Bernie Sanders.:

Good for her. We’ll see how long it takes for her to delete this one.

The Week in Review: The Trump Tide Begins to Turn

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with sellout actor Robert DeNiro threatening Trump supporters that he’d never forget what we’ve done the last few years, whatever that means. Yeah, well, we’re never gonna forget he got paid $20 million for making “Dirty Grandpa” and “The Intern.”:

But things only got better from there. Here is a worker who does, I kid you not, the BEST. TRUMP. IMPRESSION. EVER!:

Slick Willie and the Pantsuit Princess got heckled in their fake “home state” of New York, and all was right with the world.:

Jabba The Nadler jumped in to defend The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, in her latest anti-America remarks controversy.:

Cher previews the lyrics to her upcoming new hit sing, “MY CITY CAN’T TAKE CARE OF ITS OWN!!!!”:

…and the next morning’s Campaign Update was all about that Cher tweet, which was the most awesomest tweet in the history of awesomely hypocritical tweets.:

Why “global warming” isn’t really a thing anymore…:

It was mid-day Monday, and Notre Dame was burning.:

Meanwhile, “Morning Joe” was off his meds again. Or maybe he was on them, it’s hard to tell.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was running low on meaningless sophistries to recite to his mind-numbed followers, so he decided to poll them about what they want to hear, so they could give him a bunch more things to regurgitate back to them on the campaign trail. He is seriously running the most vacuous campaign in Democrat history, and that is the party that gave us two previous campaigns from Joe Biden.:

AOC is actually correct about this, but the truth about Creepy Joe Biden won’t sit well with San Fran Nan.:

San Fran Nan was trying to get AOC and The Enemy Within under some control, and her efforts did seem to have some dampening effect on their behavior as the week wore on. It won’t last for long, though.:

Well, that sure doesn’t fit the narrative. Not at all.:

Because he plans to “pay” for it by ordering the Treasury to print trillions of new dollars every year, devaluing the currency in the process. Same way he plans to pay for free college and all his other mindless socialist ideas. It’s the Venezuela model.:

Eric “Because the Government has nukes” Swalwell entered the presidential race, solely to play the role of the Democrat Party’s stalking horse on gun control.:

Andy McCarthy had a great piece on the Obama Cabal’s spying operation on the Trump Campaign.:

Yikes. Running Roy Moore for that senate seat again would be like Texas Democrats running Wendy Davis as their gubernatorial candidate again.:

Here’s my Campaign Update on San Fran Nan’s efforts to control her radical Kiddie Caucus by putting them in semi-time out.:

Tea Biscuits everywhere stand highly insulted by this tweet from the inimitable James Woods.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was too busy riding a skateboard in his sheep suit.:

The slow turning of Fox News continues…:

Our fake news media barely noticed, but realeasing the Mueller Report wasn’t the only important action taken by Attorney General William Barr this week.:

CNN’s real competition isn’t Fox News or MSNBC, it’s TLC and The Food Network.:

Gosh, I wonder what tipped him off?:

Best, most prescient meme of the week here.:

Brit Hume tipped me off to one of the best things I’ve read all year. You should read it, too.:

I’m old enough to remember when journalists were trained to bitch and moan whenever public officials refused to hold press conferences. Now, they bitch and moan when the Attorney General holds one. It’s all so despicable.:

All carbon tax proposals are nothing more than money-grabbing scams.  Every one of them. Remember this key fact of political life – it will serve you well in the future.:

Tim Young is the hammer, liberals are his nails.:

I’m always happy to be of service to others.:

And just like that, here we go.:

President Trump offers the most concise summary of the 400-page Mueller Witch Hunt Report.:

….aaaaannnnnndddd the celebration at the White House begins.:

The media reaction to Barr’s release of the Mueller Report was highly-predictable, and oh, so entertaining.:

….they were still melting down the next day, to no one’s surprise.:

Their behavior was so abhorrent that they’d even lost Geraldo Rivera, for crying out loud.:

Chris Cuomo looked like a deer in the headlights.  Ok, he always looks like a deer in the headlights, but still…:

Meet the new #NeverTrump talking points, same as the old #NeverTrump talking points. So tiresome.:

Fauxcahontas was on the warpath, sending out smoke signals demaning scalps!:

….aaaannnnnddd reliable old NBC News led the charge with the new officially-approved joint Media/Democrat talking points, as the goal posts shifted yet again.:

And finally, Mitt Romney saw what he thought was a chance to advance his own presidential ambitions by jumping in with the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, because of course he did.:

What an amazing week it was, huh?

Happy Easter to you all!

That is all.

AOC and Her Fellow Radicals Threaten to Burn the Democrat Party to the Ground

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As Notre Dame Cathedral burns to the ground, the Democrat Party leadership threatens to join it.  – Nancy Pelosi was featured in a puff piece interview with reliable Democrat activist Leslie Stahl on CBS’ “60 Minutes” fake news program Sunday evening.

At one point, Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi smirked.

Stahl responded by correcting the Speaker, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”

“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.

San Fran Nan may be “progressive,” but there are varying degrees of progressivism, and hers pales in comparison to that of our Bronx heroine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As the New York Post points out in the linked article, the House Democrat “Progressive” Caucus is in fact the largest single segment of the Party’s house membership, consisting of 98 members, of whom AOC is among the “most recognizable,” as the Post somewhat hilariously puts it. What an understatement.

Pelosi claims to be in full control of her collection of miscreants, grifters and radical activists, telling Stahl that “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to … go down the mainstream.” When Stahl asked her if “progressives” like AOC really understand that, Pelosi nervously replied that they do.

Well, you could’ve fooled AOC, Nan. Today, she told the Yahoo! news podcast “Skullduggery” that a Biden nomination “would be going backwards”:

“That does not particularly animate [me] right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the ‘good old days’ with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Oh. San Fran Nan’s botox is going to explode when she reads that. After all, Creepy Uncle Joe is the Democrat Party’s great doddering hope of appealing to the “mainstream” as Pelosi likes to refer to it, which really means the center/left segment of “independent” voters. As demented as San Fran Nan is, she is still enough in touch with reality to realize that no Democrat nominee can win the presidency without tacking some moderate votes on top of the Party’s hard-left voter base.

But AOC is having none of that. Having no use for Biden and his “mainstream” nonsense, her choice should be obvious to everyone:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”

So, no more of that fake commie stuff from the Democrat Party for AOC – she wants to got the full commie this time, and what better way to do that than with the old Bolshevik or the fake Indian?

Notre Dame Cathedral burned right down to the ground today because firefighters in Paris have no means of containing a conflagration in a structure like that venerable landmark. It is beginning to look as if the Democrat Party “leadership” is headed for a similar disaster, given that it has no means of containing their growing legion of chaos creators exemplified by AOC and Ilhan Omar.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

Cher Reaches Peak Liberal Hypocrisy With One 280 Character Tweet

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Dear Cher: Sometimes it is better to stay silent and be thought a fool than to send out a tweet that proves the point.  – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had already gotten pretty much every leading national Democrat in America to admit they really don’t want to have all those inconvenient illegal immigrants placed in their self-designated “sanctuary” cities and states. From Nancy Pelosi to Chuck Schumer to Mayor Pete to Lieawatha to Spartacus, they’d all weighed in by reciting the same talking points script to their co-conspirator reporters that the Trump plan to bus illegals to cities that claimed they actually want them was somehow “cruel” and “uses these migrants as political pawns,” as if that isn’t exactly what the Democrats have been doing with them for the last two decades. The rank hypocrisy was literally breathtaking to behold.

But things got even better on Sunday. So, so, sooooo much better, when the ’60s pop relic and current Resistance icon Cher weighed in with her own unique combination of hubris, arrogance, ignorance and abject hypocrisy. She did it all on Twitter, because of course she did:

As I compile this piece this morning, that tweet has more than 40,000 likes, one of which is mine. I’d like it 1,000 times if only I could, because it is absolutely the perfect expression of today’s mindless leftist hypocrisy, all in less than 280 characters. It is quite literally a masterpiece of the liberal hypocrite art.

See, y’all, this mindless cretin celebrity understands helping struggling immigrants in other cities – y’all should be doing all y’all can because these immigrants are all, like, struggling and stuff or something. But HER CITY – you know, like, Los Angeles and stuff? Why, HER CITY is special. Unlike any of y’all’s cities, CHER’S CITY ISN’T TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. So it’s all, like, totes special and stuff or something.

See, unlike El Paso or Las Cruces – which appealed to the federal government for more help on Sunday due to the flood of illegals into its friendly confines – or Laredo or San Antonio or Tucson or Albuquerque or any of those towns out here in what Cher calls “flyover country”, HER CITY – that’s, ummmm…Los Angeles, right? – has Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS! Is that really possible? We’ve never seen that before in Austin or Dallas or Houston or Oklahoma City or Denver. Have we?

Oh, but there’s more – poor Cher! See, HER CITY has PPL WHO – are you ready for this? – LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE, & [ARE] HUNGRY! (ummmm…what’s a “PPL”? I dunno, but Cher sez it’s a thing or something, so it must be a thing. Or something.)

Y’all, it’s soo, soooooooo sad out there in CHER’S CITY, like, you know, Los Angeles or something? And it’s even worse than that, see, ‘cuz some of those PPL WHO LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE & HUNGRY that HER CITY ISN’T TAKING CARE OF ARE VETS! ummmm….what’s a VET? Is that, like, a cat doctor or something?

But it’s not sad out there in OUR CITIES, ‘cuz we don’t have PPL or VETS or … something. And stuff.

Anyways, y’all, we gotta do something in our own towns, ‘cuz if CHER’S CITY and Her State Can’t Take Care of Its Own (many are VETS and even PPL), How Can It Take Care Of More   ummmm…I think there should be, like, a question mark there or something?

Excuse me while I go throw up.

That is all. For now.

Mayor Pete Has Stolen Beto’s Media Date to the Dance

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why, what could possibly go wrong? – A team of Chinese scientists is grafting human genes into monkeys, in an effort to make them “smarter and more human-like.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

According to the report in the Business Recorder, “Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timelineThe gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers...”  I smell a sequel to “Plant of the Apes” in there somewhere.

In all seriousness, these monkeys should immediately announce their candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination. They would smarter than half the field, better-behaved that Irish Bob O’Rourke, make a great target for Amy Klobuchar to vent her frustrations, and be far more “human-like” than Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

And speaking of Irish Bob O’Rourke… – Here’s the problem with being a media-created Democrat “Rising Star”: Everything tends to go to crap when the media inevitably finds a new rising star to create. For our hero, Irish Bob, it’s all turning into a tale of woe – or, more accurately, one of woeful polls that came out yesterday in the states that make up the first two contests of the nominating process.

First came a new Monmouth University poll of registered Democrat voters in Iowa, where O’Rourke spent the first week or so of his official campaign in March, driving around the corn fields in his carbon dioxide-emitting gas-powered van because he wanted to show he was a man of the people and the people in Iowa don’t drive no Teslas because Teslas don’t use no Ethanol, don’t you know. That pandering strategy apparently did not work out so well for our sheep suit-wearing fake Hispanic, nor did all the jumping up on the nearest table and waving his arms to get attention.

The results of the Monmouth poll are clear: Iowans don’t much care for Beto. O’Rourke, who just a few months ago was widely touted as one of the favorites in this race by his legion of media adorers, came in a very weak sixth place with just 6% support, trailing Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas in the results.

Yes, friends, Iowa Democrats prefer a fake Indian to a fake Hispanic. Go figure.

As if that result weren’t awful enough for the premiere media darling of 2018, the folks at St. Anselm’s College released a poll of New Hampshire Democrat voters to make matters even more depressing. It turns out that Granite State Democrats would rather live free or die than vote for a circus clown who livestreams his dental cleanings and calls Bibi Netanyahu a racist.

Irish Bob again comes in a very weak sixth place, again with just 6% support in this poll. He trails the same five other candidates as in New Hampshire, though in a slightly different order, with the fake Indian popping up ahead of Harris in this state.

So, what’s going on here? Well, several things.

First, as I noted a few weeks ago, Irish Bob most likely missed his window of opportunity to become an immediate, early leader in this race. He was without question the media’s favorite Democrat at the end of 2018 – they had a crush on him like a high school cheerleader with a crush on the team’s quarterback. That crush would have continued and even intensified had he returned the media’s longing desires by immediately and decisively announcing his candidacy on New Year’s Day or very shortly thereafter.

But he didn’t do that. Instead, he did what high school quarterbacks often do and fooled around for a few months. While the adoring media longed to have its precious Beto in the race, Irish Bob chose to play the field, as it were, hemming and hawing, often disappearing for weeks at a time, and refusing to commit to the relationship that the media so desperately desired.

In the meantime, other candidates anxious to attain the media’s “Rising Star” status were getting into the race and eagerly courting the media’s affections. First came Kamala Harris, who rocketed up the charts firmly into a strong 3rd place behind Biden and Sanders as soon as she offered to take the media out on their first date. It seemed to be a match made in fake news media heaven for awhile, until Harris began committing repeated gaffes, like getting caught on camera letting a CNN fake reporter help her pick out jackets at a high-dollar department store. That show of favoritism to one fake media outlet served to turn other fake media outlets off and had them go out looking for another “Rising Star” to create.

Enter Pete Buttigieg, or “Mayor Pete”, as his media adorers now love to call him. Young, good-looking, smart, quick with the recitation of his favorite talking points, able to hold his own in a tough interview with Chris Wallace – young Mayor Pete seemingly has it all, including being openly gay and married, which is like manna from heaven for his media courtiers.

As first Irish Bob’s and then Kamala’s “rising stars” have faded, it is no accident at all that Mayor Pete’s has eclipsed them in the Democrat Party’s media-created night sky. That’s what a plethora of softball interviews on the cable and broadcast networks, along with all the glowing “He’s just like another Kennedy!” profiles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair will do for a guy.

And here’s the thing about Mayor Pete: He’s not stupid or self-absorbed enough to just blow his media cheerleaders off, like their precious Beto did. Nor is he inept enough to engage in a similar series of off-putting gaffes like the bumbling Kamala.

No, Mr. Buttigieg is not a mere shooting star, no flash in the pan, as it were. You should get used to seeing his name running strong in the polling in this race, at least until someone even more attractive to the fickle fake media cheerleaders comes along and sweeps them off their feet.

Other than possibly those monkeys in China, it’s getting harder and harder to see who is still out there who might swoop in and get the media’s date to the Homecoming dance.

That is all.

Kirstjen Nielsen Resigns, and Nothing Much Will Change

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Nielsen’s out, and not much will change. – Kirstjen Nielsen became the fall guy for the ongoing fiasco at our southern border last night, to be replaced as Homeland Security Secretary by ex-Obama official Kevin McAleenan, who served as Deputy Secretary under the infamous Jeh Johnson.

So, what difference will the change in personnel make? Not much. The problem at the border is with the tragic state of our laws and politically-motivated court decisions issued by outlaw Obama judges. Until congress acts to change the laws – and this particular congress is not going to do so – the situation at the border cannot be resolved without the building of a wall. Even with a wall, it will remain near-impossible for the government to send invaders who manage to sneak into our country illegally back home unless the absurd loopholes in the asylum laws are changed. Simple as that.

So, the Democrats have “won” in this issue: They have succeeded in creating a situation of utter chaos on our border with Mexico, they have the literal invasion of our country they’ve worked for so many years to create, and no one in a position of power can do anything effective to stop it. This is the ultimate outcome of the Obama/Soros plan to “transform this country”, as Obama was so fond of saying throughout his presidency. And hey, they had plenty of help from Paul Ryan, John McCain, Mitch McConnell and the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who did literally nothing on this issue during President Trump’s first two years in office.

A pox on all their houses.

This is the issue on which the 2020 presidential election will be decided. – The President can talk all he wants to about the booming economy and Democrats can talk all they want about Green New Deals and free stuff for everybody, but, just like it was in 2016, what to do about the ongoing invasion – and that is what it is – taking place from Texas to California will ultimately decide who gets to live in the White House starting in 2021.

President Trump understands this, which is why he decided last week to put off dealing with the healthcare issue until after the 2020 election has come and gone, choosing instead to keep his focus on border security and pounding his Democrat opponents for refusing to do anything to address it.

The winning strategy for Trump is obvious: Get as many miles of new border wall built as you can with all that Department of Defense money that’s been identified, and pound the Democrats on the issue every day. Keep them on the defensive for the next 18 months.

That leaves the Democrats with what they always try to do on this subject: Rank demagoguery and trying to change the subject.

Hey, thanks to the Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney/John McCain wing of the GOP, it’s worked for them so far.

Some campaign odd and ends:

How moribund is Elizabeth Warren’s campaign? Fauxcahontas is running a poor third in her home state of Massachusetts. That moribund. And look who’s about to catch her there: Pete Buttigieg. Ouch.

Speaking of moribund campaigns, how about Cory Booker’s? He announced he had raised $5 million during the first quarter of this year, which sounds like a decent number until you realize that Buttigieg, the little-known mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had raised $7 million. Yikes.

Bernie Sanders led the Q1 money race for the Dems, coming in at $18 million. Kamala Harris raised $12 million, while Irish Bob O’Rourke came in at $9.4 million, with most of that coming in March following his announcement in late February. Because he hasn’t formally announced, frontrunner Joe Biden had no fundraising numbers to release.

Meanwhile, President Trump raised $67.5 million, $26 million more than those five leading Democrats combined.

Oh.

That is all.
